Tears again.

I don't know why math was that one subject that turned to tears for us... 

I knew though I wasn't alone.  I had met many moms just like me...

I concluded that maybe math was just a playground for discipline...  

But then there was THAT mom with kids joyfully exploring math through rods.

It was then I knew I was missing something. 

I dived deep for a better way to teach math....

And I found Gattegno and masses of free material and textbooks.  

Better yet, I found a humane way to teach...

to restore the joy of learning...

to improve my ability to connect with my child through math.

This has made Gattengo's teaching so much easier for me! I feel as though it's all been handed to me on a plate, laid out wonderfully. The kids love it. I like how they can work through some of the task cards on their own too. I used the printer friendly version and printed it all in black and white. It still looks great. Thanks for this amazing resource!               TPT Buyer Review
